I found this monitor in hard rubbish. The image quality is pretty rubbish, and it has a yellow tint. Native resolution is 1280×1024. As a second monitor it's fine for me!
xrandr doesn't recognise it so well, so I had to:
cvt 1280 1024to get the 'modeline'
xrandr –newmode “1280x1024_60.00” 109.00 1280 1368 1496 1712 1024 1027 1034 1063 -hsync +vsyncEverything after
–newmodeis grabbed from cvt.
xrandr –addmode DisplayPort-0 1280x1024_60.00Yeah, x thinks this VGA port is a DisplayPort :/
Later edit: decided to move the config. to xorg.conf to I don't have to run the commands each time I start:
Section "Monitor" Identifier "DisplayPort-0" # NB: Actually VGA Modeline "1280x1024_60.00" 109.00 1280 1368 1496 1712 1024 1027 1034 1063 -hsync +vsync Option "RightOf" "HDMI-A-2" EndSection
That goes in
/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/, and needs to be owned by your root user.
Option “RightOf” “HDMI-A-2” is referring to my other monitor (which I also set-up in this file, just to make sure it's set to be the primary monitor), change (or just remove the whole
Option line) accordingly.
